Final spurt summer figure: melt away fat cells with SculpSure® WarmSculpting™

The sun is slowly breaking through the cloud cover and the temperatures are getting warmer. For many people, this awakens the anticipation of summer and vacation time. In addition, people often take a more critical look at their own bodies: the light summer clothing reveals one or two problem areas. Annoying fat deposits are particularly noticeable on the stomach, hips and thighs. Exercise and a healthy diet are the first steps towards your desired figure, but unfortunately they do not always guarantee a slim and toned body. Some fat cells vehemently defy various efforts and simply do not want to disappear. In this case, there is a gentle and uncomplicated solution: body shaping with SculpSure® WarmSculpting™ – an innovative laser treatment that is painless and performed on an outpatient basis. Furthermore, StimSure® can effectively build up muscles, which also has an effect on fat burning and an optimal body silhouette.

How does laser-based treatment with SculpSure® work?

SculpSure® WarmSculpting™ works with special applicators that are fixed to the surface of the skin. These applicators emit focused laser energy into the area, which is absorbed by the subcutaneous fatty tissue – the fat cells that are located directly under the surface of the skin and form the unwelcome “fat pads”. The skin surface remains intact and is also protected from overheating by the contact cooling. The absorbed energy inside the body is then converted into heat. The heating of the tissue leads to the formation of collagen, thus strengthening the connective tissue and melting away the unwanted fatty tissue.

This damages the cell envelope of the fat cells. The destroyed cells can then be broken down by the body’s own processes via the lymphatic system. This process takes a few weeks and runs its course without any further measures. However, it can also be supported, for example through a healthy diet, drinking plenty of fluids and exercise. The treated areas can also be lightly massaged for a few minutes every day.

Experience has shown that the first results of the method can be seen after about six weeks. It can take up to 16 weeks for the final result. In order to achieve an optimal result, a follow-up treatment is often useful to optimize the effect achieved. After a detailed analysis, we will discuss with you personally how many treatments make sense in your case.

Is the method painful?

No, SculpSure® is hardly associated with any pain. Of course, everyone has an individual perception of pain and personal pain thresholds. With SculpSure® WarmSculpting™, a feeling of warmth can be perceived, but this is not usually described as unpleasant. In addition, as already mentioned, gentle cooling takes place. Some patients also report a slight tingling or pulling sensation. Experience has shown that additional anesthesia is not required.

If you feel uncomfortable during the treatment, please let us know and we will do our best to make the treatment as pleasant as possible for you. As a rule, however, you don’t need to worry – the treatment is particularly gentle, safe and only takes around 25 minutes per session and area.

What are the differences to cryolipolysis?

In aesthetic medicine, cryolipolysis is often recommended for the non-surgical removal of unwanted fat cells. Cryolipolysis works with cold: the areas with unwanted fat deposits are sucked in using a vacuum and fixed between cooling plates. The tissue is then cooled down in a controlled manner to destroy the fat cells.

In contrast to SculpSure®, cryolipolysis can lead to unpleasant feelings and discomfort, as the treatment areas often tug at first or are slightly painful until they are numbed by the cold. The tissue also becomes temporarily rigid and firm until it has “thawed” again. It is not uncommon for bruising and temporary numbness to occur as a result of the treatment. Another possible unpleasant side effect is so-called shark bites. They manifest themselves in an uneven result or in unpleasant “dents”.

SculpSure® is therefore a gentler and more pleasant method of tackling unwanted fat deposits. The procedure has been approved by the FDA and its effectiveness has been confirmed. In addition, SculpSure only takes 25 minutes per session, whereas cryolipolysis takes an hour on average. The great advantage of SculpSure® is that the treated areas are also harmoniously tightened and firmed by the heat, which has a particularly positive effect on the final result. SculpSure® also stimulates the formation of new connective tissue, which leads to firming collagen. This is also not possible with cryolipolysis.

How does StimSure® support the result?

The SculpSure® treatment can be optimally supplemented with StimSure®. StimSure® has a targeted effect on the muscles and trains them in a way that is not possible with any conventional sports program. An electromagnetic field stimulates the neurons and causes the muscles to contract. The tension and relaxation tightens the muscles and builds them up. A treatment session of around 20 to 30 minutes corresponds to a training session of around 24,000 sit-ups.

Strengthened muscles support natural fat loss and have a positive effect on posture and body image. Of course, a StimSure® treatment can also be carried out independently of SculpSure® to strengthen the muscular system.

Another alternative: the fat-away injection

Another way to work intensively and effectively on your personal summer figure now is the fat-away injection (injection lipolysis). In this method, a special mixture of active ingredients is injected into the treatment areas, where it triggers the natural breakdown of fat. The unwanted and stubborn fat cells are then destroyed and removed. It also takes a few weeks to see the results of the fat-away injection. The procedure is particularly suitable for small localized fat deposits.
